We can change how your teeth look with porcelain veneers. The result will look neat but natural, which means you can smile with confidence without your teeth looking artificial.
We use Emax porcelain for our veneers, the gold standard for the best possible appearance.
Porcelain veneers can have all the subtle characteristics, colours and textures of natural enamel, so they will resemble your natural teeth as closely as possible.
A friend recommended I visit Andy after I had broken a front tooth… and I subsequently had porcelain crown and veneer treatment to three teeth. It was painless and I am more than satisfied with the result, having lovely even front teeth for the first time in my life.
I feel the treatment well worth the cost, and have no hesitation in recommending Andy to others.
Mary’s front teeth were uneven, discoloured and misaligned. She chose porcelain veneers as her solution which gave her the confidence to smile fully again
The porcelain veneer is a custom-made porcelain facing which fits onto the front surface of your tooth. A highly skilled dental technician will make your veneers, who can incorporate all of the natural characteristics, colours and textures of your natural teeth. This helps us achieve the best possible appearance.
Before we carry out your veneer treatment, we would usually plan your treatment using a mock-up model of your teeth. We can use this to decide the number, position and shape of veneers which would give you the best possible result.
We usually carry out your treatment over two appointments under local anaesthetic. At the first, we would shave and prepare your teeth to allow the veneers to fit. We would take impressions of your teeth which we send away to the dental technician who will craft your veneers, and we would fit temporary veneers in place.
At the second appointment, we would remove the temporary veneers. We try in your new porcelain veneers to check we are happy with the fit and appearance, and, if so, we will fix your veneers in place using a strong adhesive.
Once your veneers are fitted, you can use them straight away.
As with all teeth and restorations, porcelain veneers will need maintenance over time. This may include refixing veneers which come away, or replacing veneers which become chipped, damaged, or exposed at the gumline.
